Credit/Debit Cards or EFT

To pay your taxes you must first look up your tax bill information by using the search feature. Once you have located the bill you wish to pay, you may add it to your cart and proceed to checkout.

Instructions

To use the search feature, you must have your 12 digit Assessment Number or 12 digit Fee Parcel number. Enter the information into the appropriate box and click the "Submit" button. If you are searching by Assessment Number, only that assessment will appear. If you wish to view all tax bills associated with the parcel (i.e. - supplemental and unsecured), searching by Fee Parcel will bring up all tax bills associated with the parcel. When the assessment you are inquiring about appears on the next screen, click on it and the tax information will be displayed.

Important Information

Credit Cards

There are no charges by the Placer County Tax Collector for processing the payment transaction. Our third party vendor will, however, charge a convenience fee. The fee is 2.6% of the total amount of your transaction. You will be informed of all charges and fees before you authorize the payment. This fee is in addition to any charges, such as interest, that may be assessed by your credit card issuer.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

The Tax Collector accepts payments via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) from checking or savings accounts. A third party vendor charges a non-refundable $1.50 per transaction fee for this service.

The EFT payment system does not have access to the checking or savings account used to make a payment. It therefore cannot verify the accuracy of the routing or checking account numbers that are entered, nor can it validate the sufficiency of funds for the transaction. Please double check the information entered. If necessary utilize the “what’s this?” links that can be found on the payment entry page after selecting the Pay Online link below.

The confirmation number received at the end of the transaction only acknowledges successful receipt of information entered. It does not confirm that the information is accurate, valid, or that there are sufficient funds in the account.

IF THE EFT IS NOT HONORED BECAUSE OF INCORRECT ROUTING OR CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBERS ENTERED, OR FOR NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS, A RETURNED CHECK FEE OF $59.00 AND ANY APPLICABLE STATUTORY DELINQUENCY FEES WILL BE ADDED TO THE PARCEL(S) AFFECTED.

Note: EFT and Credit/Debit payments will not show paid on the web site for approximately 2-4 days. The delay is due to the actual processing time of funds from the respective bank or credit card company to our bank. Upon receipt of funds payments are posted reflecting the date you actually paid.
